swinging, you better do what ronald reagan did after a lackluster opening debate with mondale. i don't know whether he does it with aject -- a joke or a quick zinger at ronald reagan did but is it incumbent upon the president to get the forts back and get back in the game? >>guest: you would think so. how could we avoid the critique of the president's performance in that debate? as i said from left to right it has been very, very critical. it is hard to think of a debate except maybe the 1980 debate between reagan and carter where the gap between the incumbent and the challenger was so great, if this doesn't get the obama white house attention nothing will. you are right, they will come up with some lines or a joke or something but it is not as though romney is just going to sit back and do nothing between now and the next debate. my guess is based on his past practice, he already is working with portman on new answers. >>neil: i like what you said "right now" it is changing people's perception of mitt romney. professor, always a pleasure, thank you. to wall street and whether investors thi
is the half to do to keep it simple? >> ronald reagan brought it down to the individual it is my microphone, our town, home, village, police department. the regulations when you create a system that should solve problems but don't people will take shortcuts bordering is as high as it has ever been. mitt romney better get off a high horse to come down to mainstream. people are terrified right now the president is leading a lot of the polls but i look at the trend if you argue not as big of the lead the trend is not his friend. >> obama's says i am a person of the people says they will put you in chains and take you -- take your life they hate women. people will believe it it distorts the reality and mitt romney better break up the better bring this down to a coal miner in ohio and the factory worker and a farmer gets it if not he will lose the election. neil: thank you very, very much. have ron paul who has had enough with it all. unplugged and looking at a believable mess that nobody is taking the time to address. democrats could see a meltdown in november. they could see the 2010 [ owner ]
and how ronald reagan did that. you do not have to change things immediately, you just have to give a plan that makes people think and hope and pray you have started the process, right? >>guest: that is correct. you need to get growth. you have to get growth. you cannot balance the budget on the backs of the unemployed and the poor. that is where a flat tax comes in. it allows attraction of the capital abroad. sam nunn was correct, you have to cut government spending. that has to happen, especially entitlements where you pay people not to work. there are other ways of bringing the debt down. cool ones. for example, how about a federal state, local, tax amnesty program? there are a lot of people in the underground economy that would be brought above ground with amnesty program. i estimate a federal, state and local tax amnesty program would raise about $800 billion in 90 days. you can also sell some assets off. camped person -- camp pendleton is 500 square miles in california. why not sell it? >>neil: my point, when you say it is too big to handle, you are missing the point, you cannot cut

-- sean, you and i know this, the president walked into a mess. >> sean: so did ronald reagan. ronald reagan at this point in his presidency, 8% growth. >> we're not debating ronald reagan. we're debating obama. >> sean: reagan had a worse economy than obama inherited. he said he was inheriting it, and he said he'd fix it. he hasn't fixed it. now we see economic growth, we're heading toward a recession. it's getting worse. $6 trillion in debt, fewer americans working. 17 million more on food stamps. you say he's done a good job and you'd give him a "a." you don't believe that. you don't believe that! >> actually i do. let's think of it this way, sean. we know there's been 30 straight months of private sector job growth. we know he created 5 million jobs. >> sean: no, he did not. private sector from this month to this month -- you're skewing the statistics. fewer americans are working than when he took office. a net loss. >> we can debate the numbers here. i believe i'm right. more importantly, let's look where we're headed. let's say we're in the middle of an ocean, you're in a rowboa
. george w. bush, ronald reagan in '84, george h.w. bush in '92, the president didn't seem to be on his game. mitt romney made a surprise appearance to a cpac event in denver still courting the conservatives but say if you know people that voted for president obama, tell them to come on over to our side. that's ironic because i don't imagine he knows many conservative republicans who voted for president obama the last time or plan to this time. nevertheless, you're no fan of governor romney. did you become a fan last night as a conservative who has doubted his credibility from the minute he entered this race? >> well, i think my credentials as a non-romney show are pretty well secured. i have good street cred for your audience. frankly, i thought mitt romney did the best job of advancing even a modicom of viewpoints and stepping up on a national stage than like when al gore invented the internet. mitt romney, unlike john mccain, mitt romney wants to win the presidency, and a lot of conservatives have asked themselves that question the past couple of weeks. i think frankly liberals ought
to one back in 1980. and as late as october much that year, ronald reagan was trailing jimmy carter in the polls and the strong debate helped him win. and mike reagan is in the next hour. and problems with seats coming loose in flights, american airlines. tom sullivan is a pilot and our aviation expert. he's going to join us to talk about american airlines and rock legends gene simmons, he voted for obama in '08 and he told us he wants to take that vote back. question, is there anything president obama could say tonight that would change gene simmons' mind and make him vote for obama all over again? we will ask him the question. and we want to hear from you of course, e-mail us at varney@foxbusiness.com. there you have it. and all right, it's wednesday morning and i have the seven early movers for you. family dollar posts higher quarterly profits and i see the stores opening everywhere and that stock is up. what's that, 2% up. nearly 3. data storage company, zero text, made less than expected and give a disappointing forecast and plummet down 12%. intermune, and health officials hav
. >> bill: in next weeks debate, can romney do what ronald reagan did to jimmy carter? megyn kelly has some thoughts. >> bill: caution the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. the likeability factor. that the subject of talking points memo. there two are kinds of voters in america those that know the issues and those that don't. emotion drives a decision and part of that equation is likeability. many people think reagan defeated carter because he came across likable while carter was distant and same thing with bill clinton and younger clinton showed more personality. bush the younger remained personally popular until the recession kicked in. right now in a popularity poll, president obama is ahead of mitt romney by throw three-points according to a new survey. after next week's debate it could change dramatically. there is no question about obama and romney realize they must come across as nice guys that is why they go on entertainment programs. >> we're is very happy you came on this a mrs. obama and brought your date? >> i brought him. he had a few minutes in his sched
don't want to have them overscripted. that is what happened to ronald reagan in 1984 debate with walter mondale. it overran the persona of ronald reagan. next debate he was much more relaxed. roger ails did a great job preparing him and did much better job. same thing with governor romney. he has to know how to answer the questions but he has to be relaxed and rely on himself. one of the things i tell candidates it's very important that they have the good political judgment to make decisions and think on their feet rather than rely on script. >> give me one thing that you think we ought to look for out of mitt romney and one thing out of obama in this debate coming up on wednesday. >>> i think one of the -- apart from the economy, i do think one thing we should be looking for is to see if the president is willing to talk about his record on the economy and defend it. the american people ought to be making a judgment whether or not the president can defend that record. he ought to be looking for governor romney how well he press the case against the president. it's been his f
amiable, if not direct. mitt romney, and i'm not comparing it to 1980 and ronald reagan being an appealing alternative, but jimmy carter, not a bad alternative. i think that could eat into the president's support and more than just the undecided voter support. what do you think? >> not necessarily. because what voters too often and we see this and a lot of data. they complain and gripe, especially well as down in the polls. when it comes down to it on election day they usually hold their nose, suck it up and vote for their party leader. that is why we have undecided voters. usually if you're a member of your party by election day you aren't going to vote for the guy neil: i know you do this in far more exhaustive detail that idea, but i am old and remember 1980 and to remember that the undecided voters at the time, jumped either ronald reagan or jimmy carter. it turns out a lot more did. i'm not saying that there is some truth to what you're saying. those who are leery of that party or the candidate of that party would jump, could jump if they are disenchanted enough with their own who cho
the president like ronald reagan stung jimmy carter that he will immediately become the frontrunner and the so-called swings states will tighten up. most of them anyway. florida particularly will. that's my analysis right now. >> i think these state races probably will tighten but that's what happens in the final weeks of a campaign. races tend to tighten. this will be a closer race in all likelihood as we get closer to election day one senses though that look an incumbent running with a record like this with the economy in such serious shape many people predicting recession with all this trouble he he has been having overseas, with all of that he he ought to be in a lot of trouble. it's surprising to many people that he is ahead. we keep thinking something will happen. is he is not a great politician but seems honorable and decent enough man that if the people were ready to make a change they would not have a lot of trouble settling on him as a reliable change agent. however it hasn't happened. we keep waiting for something to cause it to happen but it hasn't come. that's why i think people a
are not going to do what george w. bush did and what ronald reagan did. >> there is one element of truth. did the deduction side. the truth is the entire thing is up to congress. the president proposes the notion of the way that he should go. the side thea that he can stand up there and not tell anyone in america what he will veto if congress tries to do their mortgage deduction is a complete altercation of it. >> in which what you are supposed to do as a president is tell the american people and i guess congress the popular part of what you would do but it would be overstepping to sell to them the tough parts required to make it work. and if the president isn't going to be able to go out and get support for the hard parts. the tax cut part, that is the easy bit. >> thank you for joining me tonight. >> coming up, paul ryan keeps saying it takes too long to explain the math of his budget plan. but i think joe biden will let him have all the time that he needs let's week and later it is mitt romney versus big bird and in the rewrite what really happened in that debate last night. the answer les
that they may have with the viewers at home. ronald reagan, there you go again. bill: i think you make a great point on that. what you are saying is it's built in a format that will help encourage robust exchanges that would alloy the other to challenge the other one. megyn: we can hope. during the republican presidential primaries we had a format where you ask a question and the candidate got a minute or 30 seconds to respond. if you asked a followup you had to devote another minute to that topic. in such a limited time you felt constrained as the debate monitor. now it's the question, talking point for 2 minutes, then the discussion. hopefully we'll hear more. bill: they had a coin toss. president obama opens and romney closes. we hope it will be an open and earnest discussion about the future of america. have a great time in denver. megyn: i'll see you 1:00 p.m. eastern, too. jamie: the first televised debate among election contenders was held in 1960. jimmy carter-ronald reagan's debate claimed the largest audience so far. bill: stay with us on the fox news channel. at 8:55 eastern time, b
the 1980 only debate between ronald reagan fan jimmy carter. once you put in the internet and all that stuff you are looking at 70 million people probably and a lot of them watched you do it on the fox news channel i should point out. but also the fact that mitt romney won so decisively. our come petters at cnn did a survey of people who watched the debate. 67% said romney won. compare that to the last incumbent debate with george w. bush in 2004 when john kerry, his challenger was credited with a decisive win. kerry only scored 53%. this was the biggest win in recent memory and the largest audience in 20 years. it's a big deal. we shouldn't be surprised it would move the needle in key battleground ohio. megyn: on the day of the debate. wednesday afternoon, a tweet was sent out by i think it was director of the nbc polling asking folks opinions saying if romney doesn't perform well should he pull out of ohio? and that is something that we heard from others as well. now, you look at this, chris, today, a 1-point race. i guess the answer is no. he should not. no, he should not pull
to be tweaked the way it was by ronald reagan and democratic speaker tip o'neil. but the basic structure is sound. but i want to talk about the values behind social security and medicare. and then talk about medicare because that's the big driver of our deficits right now. my grandmother some of you know helped to raise me. my grandfather died awhile back. my grandmother died three days before i was elected president. she was fiercely independent. she started as a secretary, ended up being the vice president of a local bank. and she ended up living alone by choice. and the reason she could be independent was because of social security and medicare. she had worked all her life, put in this money, and understood that there was a basic guarantee a floor under which she could not go. that's the perspective i bring when i think about what's called entitlements. you know, the name itself implies some sense of dependency on the part of these folks. these are folks who have worked hard. like my grandmother. and there are millions of people out there counting on this. so my approach is to say how
. ronald reagan's perspective has dominated republicans' thoughts on this matter for years. >> we have a different approach, the president and i, between a government-dominated society and a society driven by free people pursuing their dreams. >> reporter: romney insists the federal government should be smaller and less intrusive in terms of regulations and taxes and largely it should keep out of the free market. >> i line up with a smaller government, a less intrusive government, regulations being pared back. >> such views on both sides of course can make a difference. but here is the catch. for the past century, with a few exceptions, the government has been expanding no matter which party has held the white house. more cabinet positions, more agencies, more spending per citizen and much of that is driven by things like we menged at the start. population growth, economic trends and entitlements, meaning the question is probably not whether the government will keep growing under mr. obama or mr. romney, but rather how fast. tom foreman, cnn, washington. >>> child sex trafficking, thos
, between ronald reagan and president carter. >> there you go again. >> and lloyd benson's swipe at quail. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you are no jack kennedy. >> and then the moments that seemed to say more, like george h. bush looking at his watch. and rick perry's oops remark. and romney's wager, and obama's comment to then-rival hilary. >> he's got two tough competing goals, to be likeable and layout a contrast. it's hard to be likeable when you are the attack dog. >> we have gotten to know barack obama, and there's not a lot of room on his canvas to paint, and romney can still show us who he is and where he would lead us. >> the president spends the first part of the week in the battleground state of nevada where he will be doing prep, and mitt romney will be in colorado another swing state where he will practice with ohio senator, rob porter, who is playing president obama. >>> and so what will they say? american voters will weigh their choice and the first of three presidential debates coming up this wednesday night, and can you watch it with us live at 7:00 east
in history of, there you go again, ronald reagan and jimmy carter. that seems to be what they're going for. we thought let's come up with our own suggested zingers or mitt romney. >> we're all about helping out romney. >> i came up with one. i'll lead it off. maybe romney can say something like barack obama is almost as unreliable as my backup yacht. zing. >> zing! >> mine is even worse than that. >> impossible. >> barack obama, try baracko'pologizes for america. >> zinger. >> mine is want to hear a joke? the national debt. zing! >> i like the sound effect. >> i imagine romney might actually say to paraphrase "top gun" your ego is writing checks your government can't cash. >> you misunderstood the assignment. >> i got a good one from nick who helps us out. tough on foreign policy. even his hairline is receding. >> that's good. >> that's good. >> yeah, no. it's amazing to me when you look at these and you see this, it can be funnier not in presidential debates, senate races, house races, where they show up and try too hard and often you find that's their undoing. >> i was going to say, i th
ronald reagan in that 1984 debate they had and reagan turned it around. and the only line you remember from the night was something to the effect of "i'm not going to make age an issue in this campaign, i will not use my opponent's youth and inexperience as a political issue." and everybody laughed, including mondale, and it won reagan the debate. or in the 1980 debate where ronald reagan kept saying to jimmy carter "there you go again." a great line. well said. >> jimmy says obama wants to have a substantive debate. is there a worry that he could get too deep into the issues? >> no, because of the timeframe. they're 15-minute segments. they'll go back and forth. it's not set up. they won't have the chance to go way into it deep. >> that's my worry, that you come out of this with no substance. i want substance. >> if i'm a candidate running for the presidency of the united states, what i really care about are the undecides, the people who have not yet made up their mind. those are the folks that are going to swing this election. so you've got to speak to those folks. for them, it's not
. the unemployment rate is 7.8%. this is looking very much like 1984 and ronald reagan. unemployment down, people back to work. melissa: thanks for coming on the show. we appreciate your time. >> my pleasure. melissa: so there is big divide in the jobs data today, as we're discussing household survey shows total employment surged 873,000, but payroll says only 114,000 people went back to work. even jack welch said it, hard to reconcile these numbers. he tweeted, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate so they change the numbers. that is harsh criticism. here with me is economist peter morici. which also have gary burtless, senior fellow? [no audio. what do you think. what a difference between the two surveys. peter, start with you. >> the bls is not cooking the numbers. i believe that. they don't do such a thing. there a anomalies. household survey counts self-employed people. a lot of people established home based business. they have been dissipating savings. that doesn't mean they're fully employed. to have 800,000 jobs created that would be 6% gain in emplo
, the same way that tip o'neill and ronald reagan worked together some years ago. when ronald reagan ran for office, he laid out the principles that he was going to follow. he said he was going to lower taxes and broaden the base. you've said the same thing, those are my principles. i want to bring down the tax burden middle income families. i want to work together with congress. one way for instance would be to have a single number, make up a number. $25,000, $50,000. anybody can have deductions up to that amount. and then the number disappears for high-income people. one could follow bowles-simpson as a model. and take deduction by deduction and make differences that way. there are alternatives to accomplish the objective i have, which is to bring down rates, broaden the base, simplify the code and create incentives for growth. and with regards to health care you had remarkable details with regards to my preexisting conditions plan. you've obviously studied up on my plan. in fact, i do have a plan that deals with people with preexisting conditions. that's part of my health care plan. a
dwroefr come. it's not easy to beat an incumbent president, and mitt romney is no ronald reagan or bill clinton. >> when you have an incumbent president with 8% unemployment, it's very difficult to win. romney has proven to be the worst candidate we've seen in perhaps 30, 40 years. i go back to steve's memory now when we get into 50, 60, 70 years. i agree with what's said including your points about mccain. if romney ran in '08 as he is now, obviously he did run in '08 and it didn't work out with him. one day we blame romney, and we've seen a lot of blame for romney throughout the campaign. one day blaming the polling and liberal media. i think that's a stretch. when do we look at the ideology and the difficult sell that is for the american people. when you have a party where the conventional wisdom is that this is a party that is here for the rich to serve the rich and the corporations, that's a very difficult sell. i don't know that chris christie, regular guy, could sell that better. i don't know if rick santorum can sell that better than what we've seen already. >> well, obviously,
in carter's campaign and is blamed by many for costing ford the election. in 1980, ronald reagan is repeatedly attacked by president carter for his stance on health care. >> governor reagan, as a matter of fact, began his political career campaigning around this nation against medicare. >> but reagan wins fans and the election by staying cool. >> there you go again. >> four years later, president reagan again uses humor to handle attacks on his age during his debate with walter mondale. >> i want you to know that also, i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> in the next election, democratic candidate michael dukakis is asked this controversial question in his debate with vice president george w. bush. >> governor, if kitty dukakis were raped and murdered, would you favor an irrevocable death penalty for the killer? >> no, i don't. i think you know i have opposed the death penalty during all of my life. >> the public sees his answer as cold and dispassionate and that very night, his po
it in the first place. every time we have done this whether it was ronald reagan working with tip o'neill. the ideas from the bowles simpson commission on how to do this. a traditional democratic republican consensus lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base works and you can. >> chris: you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. let me say this this way. you can lower tax rates by 20% across the board by closing loopholes and still have preferences for the middle class for things like charitable deductions is or home purchases and healthcare. so what we are saying is people are going to get lower tax rates and therefore they will not send as much money to washington and they will keep it and decide for themselves. when we have done this we created economic growth. >> chris: suppose that the doubters are right and president romney takes office and the math doesn't add up. >> i have run them in congress and they do. >> chris: let's assume it doesn't. the question is what is most important to romney? kale bacscale
it was ronald reagan working with tip o'neill the idea -- there has been a traditional democrat and republican consensus, lower tax rates, broadening the tax base works and you can, but i -- >> i don't, you haven't given me the math. >> well, i don't know... it would take too long to go through all the math. let me say it this way: you can lower tax rates 20% across the board, by closing loopholes and still have, the middle class, things like charitable deductions, home purchases, health care. what we are saying is, people are going to get lower tax rates and, therefore, will not send as much money to washington, and will keep it and decide for themselves. we've done it and created economic growth. >> chris: if, suppose, that the doubters are right and president obama takes office and -- >> i've run the numbers in congress, they do. we have five other studies that show -- >> let's assume it doesn't. the question is what is most important to romney, will he scale back on the 20% tax cut for the wealthy? would he scale back and say, okay. we'll have to raise taxes for the middle class? i guess t
just by being on the stage with an incumbent president, but you have to be ronald reagan and do a there you go again and make something of that in the ensuing campaign and also outside events, obviously, iran, the hostage situation was fatally damaging to jimmy carter. but -- >> you can only make the case that really three presidential elections of the modern elections, the debates really played an important role. 1980 was one of those. >> 1960. >> 1960 and probably gerald ford's election where he said that the eastern europe was not -- or poland was not dominated by the soviet union, made some difference in a close election. but this is going to be a close election. in spite of what you see in some of the polls, some are close now, the fundamental dynamics of this race are quite close and so its could make a difference in this race. >> thank you so much. >>> up next, is iraq unraveling? a look at where the u.s. policy stands now, next on "andrea mitchell reports." we make a simple thing. a thing that helps you buy other things. but plenty of companies do that. so we make someth
that california has had a history of always spending more money it takes in. i think ronald reagan went through that big challenge, as you remember, when he became governor, he had to raise taxes, how to figure out how to make the severe cuts that he did. 10 years later, another republican governor had to raise taxes, went through the same problem. 10 years after that, pete wilson became governor, another republican, he had to raise taxes. 10 years later, i had to raise taxes. i hated it. arnold, how can you do that? you promised the people you wouldn't raise taxes. all of a sudden you are there with a $40 billion deficit because the economy took a dive and we had less revenues coming in. >> sean: even the car tax. >> exactly. it's a real clem and real dileml challenge. i was adamant about solving the financial problem of california to pay down the debt, number one. number two, to make the deficit go away and live within our means. i was not able to do it. >> sean: we have much more with governor schwarzenneger. is he supporting a candidate this election? that is coming up next. [ male announce
's problems is he's not likeable enough and he may need to turn on the kind of easy ronald reagan charm which he deployed so successfully in debate. it's a fine line, isn't it, between being hard and aggressive and making a point, but also coming over as likeable. >> right. and piers, really, the way to deal with that, and i think this is true for any debate but especially one where the stakes are so high for the country, is to stick to what you want to do, to stick to the substance of the issues, where the country is with the bad economy, with the high deficit, and what you want to do about it. i think if you're passionate about that or a little bit angry or indignant about that, i think people understand, and i think that's what governor romney's going to do. >> you're a republican from missouri. of course another missouri republican, todd akin, has continued in his race. you opposed this to start with, now you're supporting him. he must be exasperated that he's still in this thing. >> well, i want change. i hope very much we can get change in the country and in the senate here in missouri.
. the exchange between ronald reagan and walter mondale demonstrates probably a very, very effective use of this. let's take a look. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> did mondale's reaction help him there? >> i don't think it hurt him. i think what you saw was net positive. i think it definitely helped reagan. i mean, he owned this criticism verbally, and he delivered it so comfortably and so warmly. i think mondale's reaction was comfortable and authentic and warm in response. i think the general feeling was positive, but people are -- voters attribute that positive feeling that they had to reagan, not to mondale. >> it's really fascinating stuff. appreciate your expertise. thank you. >> thanks. thank you. >>> i find that stuff fascinating. we'll be looking for body language tomorrow night. there's a lot more to follow. susan hendricks joins us. >>> according to american airlines, an internal investigation shows an improperly installed clamp is to blame for loose passenger seats on six plan
where ronald reagan was the oldest candidate in history, total zinger. nailed it. 45 minutes of tonight's 90 minute debate is slotted to focus on the economy. if you're one of the right brained people, that is half, half of tonight's debate is going to be focusing on that top issue. right now, a majority really disapproves the handling, the president's handling of the economy and that's according to the latest nbc news/wall street journal poll. you talk about it all the time with me. we had a record number of months with unemployment over 8%. and i'm starting to wonder if the american people are desensitized to this, they heard the numbers so often, they're starting to think it is normal or if not at all. >> you know it interesting, i think four years ago, ashleigh, we were in an emergency situation losing hundreds of thousands of jobs every month. and now it has become a chronic problem in the labor market. not an emergency like it was, new emergency, but a chronic problem. you got this situation where people say they feel terrible about the economy right now, they don't like the handl
't need a model. ronald reagan with the economy was never going to lose, and bill clinton won't lose in 1996. you can look at other cases where the campaigns matter. do you have a sense what that exact balance is, is there a wall to quantify it like the economy and actually campaign effects? >> we do try and quantify it where our model looks at two things. there's an economic part of it and a polls part of it. the closer to election day, the more we rely purely on polls, the theory is that if by october/november whatever impact there is to the economy hasn't been reflected in the polls, either the model is wrong or people think about other things. so right now, you know, actually do expect even before the debate the polls to it tighten some, because although the incumbent president gets a lot of credit, obama was ahead by five or six points by these polls for a while. naets hi that's high based on where the economy is. in some ways the debate brings the polls more into line with the fundamentals, which we think implies a tenuous advantage for obama. >> so, nate, if you could get into
